Brie is a very versatile cheese and pairs nicely with a multitude of wines including some reds — Beaujolais, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, grenache, merlot, pinot noir and zinfandel. White wines include chardonnay, chenin blanc, Gewürztraminer, riesling and sauvignon blanc.
Dry Rieslings also work well with this cheese. The mild buttery and earthy notes of brie make it the perfect partner for the toasty, bready flavor of Champagne. Like Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, Champagne is acidic, which allows it to cut through brie’s fat content.
